Built in 2000 and consisting of 8 river facing towers Royal Artillery Quays was formerly part of the Royal Arsenal site until the 1960's when the Ministry Of Defence gave 1000 acres of predominantly marshland over to be developed for much needed housing.
The marshland had been used as a site for testing munitions manufactured in the Royal Arsenal as the boggy land dulled the explosions and the area was largely uninhabited at the time.
Located on the 2nd floor with access via security controlled communal door to the communal hallway, take the stairs if you’re feeling fit or for ease the lift!
Once inside the flat the hallway gives you access to all rooms with the living room at the furthest end of the hall. The hall has two large storage cupboards, one of which used to house the boiler
The living room is a great size with a near full length window 'framing' the river views and a double glazed door gives access to the balcony. The balcony is west facing towards Canary Wharf and so will have full afternoon and evening sun and no doubt some stunning sunsets.
Currently the kitchen is separated from the living room by a stud wall and has a gas hob, electric oven, extractor, fridge, freezer and dishwasher with space for a washing machine. A good practical kitchen which offers the option to open up into the living room as part of any refurbishment that you may decide to make.
Both bedrooms are doubles and enjoy the west aspect with big windows to take in the view and natural light. The main bedroom has the ensuite shower room and there is a bathroom just off the hallway.
The property comes with a secure underground parking space!

Regeneration of Woolwich
A new Civic Centre on Wellington Street provides a new library, post office and cafe/bar. Behind the centre a brand-new Tesco superstore has recently opened alongside a town centre car park and 1000 new homes. The Tesco store is an eco-store powered by solar panels and wind turbines, and has a farmers' market selling local produce, and two children's playgrounds.
Spray Street Development – Planning permission is going through for the redevelopment of the main road back to Spray Street. This mixed use area will greatly improve the look and feel of Woolwich.
At the western end of Powis Street, there is a designated development are known as the Woolwich Triangle - construction will soon commence for a new shopping centre with a major retailer taking centre stage. The Triangle development will include a leisure space, cafes and restaurants. The whole area covers an area of 300,000sqft and will revitalise the whole western end of the Town Centre as a car-free zone. Woolwich gets its own 'West End'. In fact British Land recently spent £100M acquiring land and buildings in Woolwich.
The High Street will also benefit from the restoration of the existing Grade II listed buildings to give extra character and focus. The old Co-op building has now been refurbished with more buildings to be done. Once refurbished these historic buildings will accommodate new retail brands and major high street names, the whole area will become more vibrant during the day and in to the evening with new coffee bars and restaurants.
£6.6million was recently spent on the redesign of General Gordon Square and Beresford Square near to the Woolwich Arsenal DLR and Train stations. This is now complete, and features include new landscape planting, seating areas, a large digital media display for sporting and public events and a new water feature.
